I don't think that passing all those stones is a good thing, because obviously I had to do something wrong to get them all there in the first place. Maybe you are a healthier eater than I am and that's why you don't get as many stones; because they just aren't there. Maybe my persistence of every 2 weeks is finally paying off. What I can say is that I am naughty in moderation. I am a healthy eater a lot of the time. I will splurge and eat things that I know are not healthy too. I just try to keep a balance. As long as I do this, I know I will produce more stones faster than if I ate healthy all the time. But unlike many months ago, I now know how to get rid of them. All I can say is I am so thankful that I found this website many months ago.
